Everyone can sing, it’s all about finding your voice!

Illustration of music notes
  • Do you love to sing?

  • Do you want to sing with a strong, healthy voice?

  • Do you want to improve your confidence and perform in front of others?

  • Are you ready to put in the work and achieve your vocal goals?

If you said yes to any of the above then I am here to help you find your voice.

I will tailor your singing lessons to your goals, ability, musical tastes and learning style, and together we will work on technique through a mixture of vocal exercises and putting it into practice through song. It’s completely up to you whether you want to work towards exams or purely to improve your singing.

I teach both individuals and small groups; absolute beginners and more experienced singers; children, teenagers and adults. I truly believe that everyone can sing, it’s all about finding your voice.

ℹ️ All lessons are taking place online at the moment and I will continue to offer video lessons in addition to face to face lessons once it is safe to sing together again, so it doesn't matter where you are in the world!

For younger students:

Singing develops musical talent, builds self-esteem, focus, and study skills.

For adults:

Singing lowers stress, teaches mindfulness, promotes healthy breathing, and helps express emotions.

For everyone:

Singing improves speaking, listening, and presentation skills, while boosting both poise & confidence.

Book Your Consultation Lesson

The consultation lesson is a way for us to get to know each other and make sure we are the right fit as teacher and pupil.

  • We will discuss why you want to start singing lessons, what your vocal goals are and what music you love to sing.

  • I will talk about my teaching style, what pattern lessons follow and how I adapt them specifically to your aims and needs.

  • We will then spend some time warming up, doing a few exercises to assess range and voice type, strengths and areas we can work on together. If you are working on a specific song or have a piece you would particularly like to learn then we can also begin to work on that.

Along the way you will have the opportunity to ask any questions regarding the lessons, your voice and the way we would work together.

"Friendly, reliable and professional"

"My 11-year-old son has been having singing lessons with Hannah for the past 6 months. Hannah has really built up his confidence and enjoyment over this time, as well as helping him progress technically and developing his knowledge of music theory. Hannah has been friendly, reliable and professional throughout our time working with her, and adapted quickly and easily to the transition needed to online lessons over lockdown. Thanks, Hannah!"
